We will discuss other attributes of Satan. One attribute that comes to mind that has not discussed is Satan the Tempter. He is known to have tempted many but have you ever read what is written in Matthew 4. Satan being bold and using his skills to deceive ..he tempted JESUS!!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 Then Jesus was led (guided) by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted (tested and tried) by the devil.
2 And He went without food for forty days and forty nights, and later He was hungry.
3 And the tempter came and said to Him, If You are God’s Son, command these stones to be made [[a]loaves of] bread.
4 But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took Him into the holy city and placed Him on [b]a turret (pinnacle, [c]gable) of the temple [d]sanctuary.
6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said to him, [e]On the other hand, it is written also, You shall not tempt, [f]test thoroughly, or [g]try exceedingly the Lord your God.
8 Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory (the splendor, magnificence, preeminence, and excellence) of them.
9 And he said to Him, These things, all taken together, I will give You, if You will prostrate Yourself before me and do homage and worship me.
10 Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! For it has been written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve.
11 Then the devil departed from Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
Now pause for a moment, think about this? Satan thought to himself that I will attempt to deceive the Son of God..JESUS..
Now what do you think is doing to us..to you???
Ever wonder why your husband lies to you..
Your wife cheats??
Your children stealing from you??
Your boss just doesn’t like you much??
Does any of that sound familiar? Well guess what they are all being deceived. Because of his deception they are prime targets to be tempted to do what is wrong..
If you have been deceived and hence, have been tempted to do something that is wrong. Something that has hurt someone else..please go to them and ask for forgiveness.. Begin a new you where you do all within you to avoid the characteristics of Satan. Live your life in a manner that others may speak well of you..
